Coach 1941 – SPRING 2019 READY-TO-WEAR

Coach’s Spring show. Turns out creative director Stuart Vevers was on his way to Santa Fe, New Mexico—specifically the Ghost Ranch, famous for its prehistoric fossils and Georgia O’Keeffe paintings. What does one do with 24 hours in Santa Fe? Well, if you’re Vevers, after you’ve seen the ranch, you figure out where the cool kids are (in this case, an open-all-night dive bar). Dressed in long distressed leather jackets, billowing cotton blouses, and languid slips that trailed the floor, the bedheaded models seemed like they’d emerged from some secret desert party. Though the moody, Stevie Nicks–inspired palette of last season was wiped clean, there was something vaguely spooky about this collection. Even the most innocent leitmotifs came with an eerie...

Best Bag Deals for the Weekend

we skipped last weekend's bag deals, but I'm here today to make it up to you! And if—like us—you're still a bit sad at the news of her departure, then let one of these sweet bag deals lessen the blow. I did some digging to bring you the cream of the crop from the sale section, and with fall in full swing there's no time like the present to up your bag game. Even though I just snatched up the red bag of my dreams (see which bag soon!) I'm obsessing over the beautiful Givenchy Antigona I found on sale!  Dolce & Gabbana Lucia Tote Valentino Rockstud Leather Shoulder Bag JW Anderson Latch Bag Fendi By The Way Shoulder Bag    ...

Balenciaga – SPRING 2019 READY-TO-WEAR

The project came together when he met digital artist Jon Rafman at Art Basel. Rafman was on hand to talk about the creation of the immersive experience. It had the audience so stunned that people were transfixed in their seats for a good few seconds after it ended, trying to process what they’d just seen. “My work explores new technologies and how our society, our consciousness, our interrelationships have changed,” Rafman said. He and Gvasalia collaborated at a distance, with full creative freedom given to the artist. “It was a marriage of kindred spirits,” Rafman added. Well, being in that tunnel, you couldn’t help but feel you were present. Dealing with focusing on the present, with all the roiling complexities, dissonances,...

Coach to drop fur by Fall 2019

Coach has become the latest brand to say no to fur, Business of Fashion reports. Joining other labels such as Burberry and Gucci, the luxury label has promised that real animal fur will be completely phased out of collections by Fall 2019.     “Coach has been committed to advancing sustainable practices for many years, with the introduction of our corporate responsibility goals in 2015. Back then, we laid the groundwork for prioritizing social and environmental initiatives. The decision to go fur-free is a truly meaningful milestone for the brand,” said Joshua Schulman, President and CEO of Coach in a statement. As part of the brand’s broader program, Coach added, the brand is also dedicated to empowering employees and enhancing the lives of those in the greater community. The Coach Foundation, founded...

The Honest Co. Hand Sanitizier Spray

There's really no time of year when you shouldn't be using hand sanitizer — especially if you, like me, live in New York City and come into contact with an unthinkable number of germs via the Subway or even the door handle to get into your office building.     But now that cold and flu season is officially upon us (reminder: go get your flu shot!), it's all the more reason to stock up. So you might as well stock up on a good one that's actually pleasant to use, like The Honest Co.'s version. It's plant-based and hypoallergenic, and I've found that it definitely doesn't dry out my hands as much as other formulas can. That's probably because this one (while, yes, being made...

Bond No. 9 New Bond St Eau De Parfum

Think of this new fragrance like a grown-up gourmand. No longer a dessert-derivative, this one's got teeth. The creamy vanilla, coffee, and cocoa are sexed-up with leatherwood and spicy patchouli. It's a scent that smells like a modern-day speakeasy — one with dark velvet wallpaper, glistening leather-upholstered booths, and a really good DJ. Here at Bond No. 9, we've always loved the low-key, unassuming, out-of-the-way NoHo side street that's been our headquarters and flagship since 1999. Today, this two-block cobblestoned stretch is no longer unassuming. Sure, it still exudes a vintage Downtown vibe. But dramatic changes have taken place on Bond Street. Over the past several years, it's evolved into a zone of casually elegant fabulousness for the millennial supermodels, the iconic movie stars, the politicos...

The Marni Fall 2018 collection: Big Foot Sneakers

The Marni Fall 2018 collection is characterized by a naive approach expressed through instinctively and spontaneously combined colours, through magnified proportions and through the playful processes of assembling, modifying and matching.         Staying true to an ironic vision in which fun is the key element of traditional clothes and accessories, the new Marni Big Foot Sneakers are a reinterpretation of classic ‘80s running shoes, redesigned with saturated colours and large volumes. The technical fabric upper, embellished with a suede band on the front and side, is combined with a flatform rubber sole.           The sneakers are available in a mustard with a rust-coloured band or in more classic versions in electric blue with a white band and grey with a black band. They...

Victoria Secret’s x Mary Katrantzou Collection

For the second year in a row, an unexpected designer collection will be coming to the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The lingerie brand previously partnered with Balmain on a collection both for the runway and in stores. This time, Victoria's Secret announced it will be collaborating with Mary Katrantzou for its show later this year in New York City. The forthcoming collection will be a departure from last year's edgier one. While the Balmain collection typified Creative Director Olivier Rousteing's sexy and overembellished designs, viewers can expect more playful designs from Katrantzou. Referred to as the "Queen of Prints," the Athens-born, London-based designer recently celebrated her brand's 10th anniversary during London Fashion Week.   "Everything that Victoria's Secret creates is about a woman feeling confident and empowered —...
